About this spot
Fir Island is one of the premier wildlife viewing spots in Washington State. Every autumn, tens of thousands of snow geese and hundreds of trumpeter and tundra swans descend on Fir Island, arriving from Alaska and Siberia, to spend the winter. And soon after the waterfowl arrive, bald eagles fly in to prey on the weak birds. The area also includes many other birds, including hawks, owls, various ducks, and great blue herons.
